Why do we use did instead of was and vice versa
In past tense sentences why do we use a form of the verb to 'be' (i.e. was) in some sentences while using 'did' in others?.
Is there a historical reason to this?
E.g. What was England's score yesterday?
What did they score?
My question really is , is there some reason we choose one verb over the other?
Can someone clarify please?
